More Springy Earrings


About this design:

Just playing with springs and coils again. Copper and Brass wire with accents charms I made from beads. Then one freshwater pearl design thrown in just for fun!

Components:

The first one is copper wire with Czech glass (LB), the second one is copper and brass with glass beads and brecciated jasper (LB), the third one is labradorite with brass and copper, the fourth is lampwork glass with brass, and the fourth is just an 'extra' no springs, but I really like the Swarovski crystal with the mango colored freshwater pearl and dalmatian jasper (LB).

    Oh..these are so cool! You really show originality,with the mixture of metals.Each pair is so different,that I could write abook. (I get a bit wordy). ;)
    How fab are the mango pearls? next to the “Fire Opal)? crystal. Do I spy Padparadscha as well?

    Thanks, Nancy, and yes, your are correct, that is padparadscha. Good eye! :D I tend to get wordy too, so I understand completely. ;) I was really excited about the fire opal with the mango pearls too. :)

    Love your mixed metals with the colorful beads. So fun and ready for Spring and Summer outfits. My favorite so far is the labradorite pair.

    Thanks, Fresh Baked! I love labradorite in general too, and I thought it went well is the copper.
